Ontario’s police watchdog charged 20 police officers with crimes in 2016

Ontario’s police watchdog saw a slight increase in the number of cases it opened and the number of officers it charged with crimes in 2016, according to its annual report released Thursday.

The Special Investigations Unit, which probes police-involved deaths, serious injuries and allegations of sexual assault, opened 327 cases in 2016, up from 312 in 2015 — a 5 per cent increase.

Among the 296 cases it closed in 2016 — which includes cases opened prior to that year — the agency laid charges in 17 cases against 20 police officers. This number is up from 16 officers charged by the SIU in 2015.
